Subject: [PATCH 4.14 46/64] nl80211: Sanitize array index in parse_txq_params

4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Dan Williams dan.j.williams@...el.com

commit 259d8c1e984318497c84eef547bbb6b1d9f4eb05

Wireless drivers rely on parse_txq_params to validate that txq_params->ac
is less than NL80211_NUM_ACS by the time the low-level driver's ->conf_tx()
handler is called. Use a new helper, array_index_nospec(), to sanitize
txq_params->ac with respect to speculation. I.e. ensure that any
speculation into ->conf_tx() handlers is done with a value of
txq_params->ac that is within the bounds of [0, NL80211_NUM_ACS).
